Welcome to Learning Services, which serves as the team of learning-focused departments including:

  • Assessments 
  • Athletics and Activities
  • Counseling
  • English Language Learners
  • Gifted and Advanced Academics
  • Curriculum & Instruction
  • Student Engagement Initiatives
  • Special Education

We exist to support schools, create a shared vision for teaching and learning and model the way as educators who are always striving to be the best we can be for students. 

We Believe...

  • In capacity building

  • The school is the best unit of influence for student learning

  • Successful schools intentionally structure themselves to ensure collaboration for effective teaching and learning

  • Teachers are leaders who make instructional decisions in the classroom and also contribute as leaders to broader school structures that lead to student success

  • Administrators are lead learners who partner with teachers and keep the focus on teaching and learning by hosting, facilitating and leading instructional conversations through school structures
